My Creative Time's FIRST Design Team Call!

Happy Saturday Crafters,

Today I am posting my entry to be a part of the My Creative Time design team. Miss Emma from My Creative Time has a fabulous line of Stamps/Dies that she releases every month. Click Here to check out the amazing stamps she has currently. I have two set's of the My Creative Time stamp line which are Many Greetings & Gift Card Sentiments (this goes perfectly with the Embossed Gift Card Holder Die). I chose to work with the Gift Card Holder Die and the Gift Card Sentiments stamps today. Since Christmas is right around the corner (can you believe it) I decided to make an M&M Cookie Mix in a Jar to get started on some gifts. I have to give a disclaimer and say I was a bit out of my comfort zone with this type of project. :) The original recipe I had didn't fit in the jar so I cut the recipe in half. I don't bake very often and think I may keep this first one and make the cookies to make sure the recipe is correct. HA! Okay so onto the details of the part of my project that I am comfortable with (the paper part LOL). :) 

Blogger keeps changing this picture to the side. :(

I wanted to show another way to use the Gift Card Die, so I used this to hold the list of additional ingredients/baking directions needed.  I stamped the Sentiment from the Gift Card Sentiments stamp set (fit's perfectly!)  I am sooo happy with how my project turned out.

From Top to Bottom:
Circle cut from Art Philosphy flood filled with pattern from Imagine More (pg 41)
Santa's Sleigh and all layers from Jolly Holidays cut at 1.8 rel.
Stamped ribbon around rim with Gift Card Sentiments added some stickles.

My Creative Time Die (Embossed Gift Card Holder)
Sentiment from Gift Card Sentiments.
The adorable house is cut from Jolly Holidays at 3.2 rel...these cut's were flood filled with patterns/colors from Kate's Kitchen.  (pg 43 & 46)
I used White Flocking Powder for the snow cuts on the house. 
The last cut is the inside of the Gift Card Holder, which was flood filled with the same pattern of the circle with Santa's Sleigh.  I was going to type the directions, but decided to handwrite them for a more home made feel.
